National Watermelon Day - August 3rd

We're always looking for something NEW to celebrate here at the Mansion. I mean, Bastille day was fun - but I'm still trying to get all of that bubbly out of the Persian rugs from the race that came through my living room. Ah, but it was worth it - I found the BEST waiter and there was plenty of DP to go around.

I was getting a little down in the dumps, until I found out that TODAY is National Watermelon Day.

Since seed spitting is NOT on the agenda (how gauche), I found a wonderful water that is flavored with watermelon. It's called HINT and it comes in a lot of other flavors as well. Unfortunately Hint can only be purchased in California or online right now, so if you were planning a celebration sans seed spitting like I am you may have to resort to the old standby of making a drunk watermelon.

Either way - enjoy!!

Watermelon-ade Sangria

  • 3 bottles of Watermelon HINT water
  • 1 orange, peeled and broken into sections
  • 2 bananas peeled and sliced right before making the sangria
  • 2 cups of seedless grapes, cut into halves
  • 1 bottle of champagne
Drunk Watermelon
  • 1/5 part Vodka
  • 1 whole Watermelon

Drunk Watermelon Mixing Directions

Cut a hole in the top of the watermelon and pour all of the vodka in the watermelon. Put the watermelon (hole upwards) in the fridge for one day before eating.
